Bargain Alert: Best Buys for May Include Appliances, Kitchenware, Bedding and More!

The theme for May best buys is “new beginnings,” since many of the deals cater to graduating students and newlyweds. Spring often represents a new beginning and also plays heavily into the offerings. You don’t need a diploma or a marriage certificate to take advantage of these great bargains. The Best Time to Buy Guide from recommends you be on the lookout for the following items in May.

1. Mattresses and Box SpringsNew models of mattresses are released over the summer, making spring a great time to buy last year’s model for less. If you find yourself gravitating toward the middle of the bed each night or wake up with your limbs still asleep, it’s likely time for an upgrade. For tips on buying the right mattress, check out the Consumer Reports’ buying guide published earlier this month.

2. Cookware
If your meals are beginning to take on the distinctive flavor of Teflon, now is the best time to replace that peeling pan. Cookware represents a practical and popular gift for couples and college grads, making early summer the best time to stock up on essentials. You can often score extra savings with a coupon to Williams-Sonoma and other specialty stores by shopping online.

3. Refrigerators
Memorial Day not only offers an extended weekend for most 9-to-5er’s, it also represents one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year. Appliances are a “hot” item in the spring, especially refrigerators (though be sure to buy one that’s cold — bwahahaha!). Given recent headlines, you might find the best deals at Sears and Best Buy this month.

4. Party SuppliesEven if you’re not hosting a backyard reception or graduation celebration, you can still throw a springtime bash and save on party supplies at the same time. Disposable items like plates, cups and utensils are at their best prices in May, though you can always find a good deal on these items at your local dollar store.

5. Kitchen Accessories
You can find excellent prices on kitchen accessories during both spring and fall. Graduations and weddings drive deals at this time of year, and food-laden holidays beginning in late fall spur the need for the latest gadgets. In addition to department stores, be sure to check out warehouse stores for competitive prices on everything from mixers to microwaves.

6. Picnic and BBQ SuppliesThough people in the northeast might disagree, spring typically represents the best time of the year to host an outdoor get-together. To entice shoppers away from their competitors– and computers–, both merchants and manufacturers offer great deals on such BBQ necessities as condiments and grilling tools.
